Hogan said Silva would continue to work for Hometown for at least a month.
"We've been delighted with John," said Hogan. "It's a very very difficult position. He grew in the job, and we grew with him."
Silva came to Hometown Health, then called Schenectady Family Health Services, from Massachusetts in 2000 as a federal consultant to help salvage operations at the center. The center at the time was losing money. Silva became executive director in 2001.
Silva, who lives in Rotterdam, is also a member of the Rotterdam Town Board who was elected to his first term last year. Silva has not resigned from the board, according to Town Clerk Eunice Esposito.
Supervisor Steven Tommasone said he did not expect Silva would be leaving his position.
Silva could not be reached for comment.""
